as the fiscal cliff. if that happens, it will trigger a recession, or worse. so, president obama is taking action and insisting that republicans agree to increase the existing marginal tax rates on the wealthiest top 2% of u.s. taxpayers. and of course, there is more to the deal. but there will be no negotiations on that big part of the deal unless that tax on the wealthiest 2% is negotiated now. the president could not be more emphatic in stressing the indispensable element of surmounting the cliff is that super-rich revenue. >> we're not insisting on rates just out of spite. or out of any kind of partisan bickering. but rather because we need to raise a certain amount of revenue. >> okay. here is john boehner, the republican house speaker. >> if you look at the plans that the white house have talked about thus far, they couldn't pass either house of the congress. >> republicans proposed raising $800 billion in extra revenues. and that revenue should come through tax reform and closing loopholes. happy new year. question, patrick, looking into the crystal ball and tell us about this janua

'm john roberts in for bret baier this friday evening. president obama came out moments ago to address the fiscal cliff. saying he still thinks a deal could happen. but that now is not the time for self-inflicted wounds. this is after house speaker alternate way out didn't make it to a vote in the house. we have fox team coverage. ed henry focuses on a tale of two white houses with messaging. but first, mike emanuel looks at where the republican goes from here and what speaker boehner had to say about it today. >> after last night's unexpected withdrawal of the speaker boehner's plan "b," many hope plan "c" develops quickly. >> how we get there, god only knows. >> candid moment with house speaker boehner as talks to address the fiscal cliff yet to produce a deal. the speaker acknowledged trying to bridge the differences with the president has been difficult. >> i told the president on monday, these were my bottom lines. the president told me that his numbers, $1.3 trillion in new revenues, $850 billion in spending cuts, was his bottom line. that he couldn't go any further. >> so boehne
people. that proposed almost $3 trillion in spending cuts. president obama's last offer, the one that the republicans rejected, was less than $1 trillion in spending cuts. we checked. that would be less than 2% of the $44 trillion the government will spend over the next decade. again, is that the best democrats can do? 2% of all the spending over the next decade? >> you know, this conversation means exactly what is wrong in washington. i mean, just listen to the conversation you just had. it is he said/she said, blame the other guy. and, look, i tried to be constructive here and lay out an actual plan to get us nearly $4 trillion, by taking the offers that are on the table. speaker boe president were so close and then speaker boehner went off on plan b. i never understood why. had no prospect of succeeding. it did not succeed, even in his own caucus. but now -- >> you are not answering my question. >> yes. because i'll tell you, something, because we only have nine days left here. when are we going to get serious about actual solutions? i would welcome john to tell me, he says he
ring in 30 minutes, president obama is set to deliver his remarks, we will have them of course live for you here now on "power lunch." let's look at the countdown clock. if we don't get a deal before time slip slides away, spending cuts and tax hikes are indeed the order of the day on this new year. happy new year, america. i'm sue herrera. we will start with john har wood at the white house in a few minutes. but amman starts us out. >> it seems they are really hashing out details of what to do about the sequester, those are the massive spending cuts. how long you delay those down and otherwise pay for them seems to be the crux of the negotiation going on behind closed doors right now but it is very difficult to find out exactly where these negotiations stand because all sides are being very, very mum. we can tell you that democrats appear to be getting a little bit concerned about where this is headed. take a listen to senator tom harkin who took to the senate floor earlier today. >> the deal must be one that really does favor the middle class, the real middle class, those making 3

a long time just trying to figure out what's going on with the story. president obama will be coming here later today and meet with some of the victims' families and we're told he will speak at a vigil being held tonight. meanwhile, the community is grieving. we saw more vigils here last night really moving vigils. 20 children and 6 adults died in friday's shooting inside sandy hook elementary. we should begin hearing the first funeral plans for some of the victims very soon. we also want to pass this along. the united way has set up a sandy hook school fund. donations, as you can see right there on your screen, donations sent to the newtown savings bank 39 main street right here in newtown, connecticut. this fund will be used to help pay for the funerals of the victims, john. >>> police say they have found important evidence during their searches at the school and at the shooter's home. we also know now more about the actual shooting and what weapons were used in it. cnn national correspondent susan candiotti joins me now and, susan, what are we learning this morning? >> hi, john. well,

in for chris matthews. we're expecting president obama to make a statement from the fiscal cliff on the white house in just a moment. the statement comes after an embarrassing defeat after last night for house speaker john boehner. he had to pull his own fiscal plan because he couldn't get his own party to vote for it. now the fiscal cliff talks are up in the air. nbc's mike viqueira is on capitol hill for us as we await the president. mike, what are we anticipating? >> reporter: we're anticipating the president is going to come out and talk about where negotiations stand at this point, and as far as we know, they're pretty much nowhere. we're sifting through the wreckage of what happened here in the house of representatives last night. i mean, a lot of people are looking at this and saying the president has doubled up on his victory on election day, his battlefield victory. he has routed the enemy, chased them into the woods, and what happened last night was a reckoning for the republican party. they are fractious by their own admission. john boehner cannot negotiate now. if he didn't have t

to get a deal passed by next friday, the last day congress is in session. president obama and house speaker john boehner know they have to reach agreement this week if there's to be a deal, which is why they met behind closed doors on sunday. spokesmen for both men say that lines of communication remain open with the president reiterating today that he's up for a big deal. >> i have said i will work with republicans on a plan for economic growth, job creation, and reducing our deficits. i'm willing to compromise a little bit. but if we're serious about reducing our deficit, we've also got to be serious about investing in the thiges that help us grow and make the middle class strong. >> as for speaker boehner, he continued his political posturing today with a statement. quote, the republican offer made last week remains the republican offer, and we continue to wait for the president to identify the spending cuts he's willing to make as part of the balanced approach he promised the american people. that said, an increasingly limber group of republicans are showing flekx 5eb89 on highe
'm chris matthews in washington. let me begin tonight with this. president obama deserves the best possible secretary of state. he picked a great foreign policy officer in the first term. he deserves to have one in the second. it's been my view some distance from the white house that the president was truly undecided on who this person should be. ambassador rice's removal of herself from consideration made his decision easier. john kerry could end up a fabulous secretary of state, someone to make this country truly proud. he lost the presidency by a single state in 2004, then went on to become a deeply effective chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. he projects a grace under pressure that we see in the president himself, a noble attribute most of us take as quiet courage. as embarrassing as it is to admit, he is one of the few top politicians in this democratic country to master foreign languages. not a small talent in world diplomacy. i like kerry because he's had the guts to run for office just like hillary clinton. he's had the nerve to stick his neck out and ask the voter
